That sounds like a proper plan.....

βrian: has your wife been to any of the pulquerias? I went to one that was the hipster haunt frequented by the uni students in DF, then I went to a hole-in-the-wall dive that was much closer to my tastes

@Scraps: I'm able bodies, and my last Brooklyn toilet would take more exertion and hours then worth describing every time it got clogged, so I can approximate your duress.

abled-bodied (I should just give up on English)
Avatar Thu. 3/29/18 12:24pm βrian:

@NGH: I don't think so. I'm guessing she's kind of wrapped up with her conference. She sent a photo of some Alma Azteca, in order to appease me, I think.
Avatar Thu. 3/29/18 12:26pm βrian:

I don't like to travel, in particular. But I do like to travel in order to get somewhere else, if that makes any sense. I like to settle in, I guess.
Avatar Thu. 3/29/18 12:28pm northguineahills:

Well, the best places (restaurants, bars, etc) are near the old town (near the old cathedral), which is only a short bus ride from the newer commercial downtown. I know many cool nooks and crannies in Mexico City.
Avatar Thu. 3/29/18 12:29pm Parq:

I get what you're saying about travel, Meghan. I've always said that, while I like to see sights, my main goal in visiting a new locale is to get the local vibe. I got to do what you were suggesting just once, with a three week stay in a local apartment. It was The best.
Avatar Thu. 3/29/18 12:31pm northguineahills:

I hate the getting there part of travel (airports), unless I have time to take the scenic route, but I love being in different places (I even explore my local area, I found a queer redneck bar randomly on bday, which was a nice surprise, and had a blast).
Avatar Thu. 3/29/18 12:32pm northguineahills:

on my bday (someone translate for me).
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 3/29/18 12:32pm Meghan:

If there was a way to just get there would be great, but I guess like seasons, you appreciate arriving after the travel. Though I can do without some of the waiting..
Avatar Thu. 3/29/18 12:34pm Parq:

I've said for a very long time: I love travel, but I hate transit.
Avatar Thu. 3/29/18 12:39pm βrian:

But some forms of transit are most definitely better than others. I'm a fan of the TGV.
Avatar Thu. 3/29/18 12:43pm Parq:

If you've never heard Patton Oswalt's bit on why he likes Jet Blue, you should. Summary: air travel has become just awful, and Jet Blue accommodates that by surrounding you with indulgently moronic entertainment.
Avatar Thu. 3/29/18 12:45pm northguineahills:

Jet Blue is the least stressful American airline to fly, and at LaGuardia, there's barely a line to get through security..
Avatar Thu. 3/29/18 12:47pm northguineahills:

Not a fan of the Frankfurt or De Gaulle airport, but every other non-American airport I've been to since 9/11 has been a breeze.
Avatar Thu. 3/29/18 12:47pm Jay/London:

loving the show Meghan .. u have pulled all the stops out
Avatar Thu. 3/29/18 12:49pm βrian:

How was the jet lag, Meghan? That kills me.
Avatar Thu. 3/29/18 12:50pm Jay/London:

hate traveling waiting fort some sort of star trek beaming thinie ... love it when i get there .. traveling nowadays is so stressful
Avatar Thu. 3/29/18 12:51pm βrian:

Paris is too much for me unless I'm escorted. Love the countryside, though.
Avatar Thu. 3/29/18 12:52pm northguineahills:

The people who say the French are rude, also think NYers are rude.
Avatar Thu. 3/29/18 12:53pm Jay/London:

i have friends who live in paris so can aways hop on the train to see them in about 2 hours from my home in London
Avatar Thu. 3/29/18 12:54pm βrian:

They must have travelled to France during Rude season.
Avatar Thu. 3/29/18 12:59pm Jay/London:

@ brian one is oz the other is French ... the oz one would like to live back in London as she thinks the French r rude lol
Avatar Thu. 3/29/18 12:59pm northguineahills:

TBH, the rudest people at De Gaulle were the American immigration officials.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 3/29/18 1:00pm Meghan:

Ugh, the jet lag is always hard, but especially hard when you are non stop the second you get back home.... I think I am back to schedule....

We came in and out of Orly, which was a breeze coming in, but going out was a bit more wacky...

Yeah. I stayed up too late last night to read "Red Sparrow" for Book/Movie adaptation club.

Avatar Thu. 3/29/18 1:23pm northguineahills:

I only eat once a day around 3ish. When I was in Brooklyn, I would make dinner w/ my wife around 10:30 (when we were both finally home from work).
  Thu. 3/29/18 1:23pm elwyn:

What time do Americans normally have dinner?

I tend to go very late because I go to the gym after work then eat when I get home.
Avatar Thu. 3/29/18 1:25pm northguineahills:

A dozen oysters would be more food then I could eat in one day (pure volume of food), 5 is the most I've ever had (I don't eat very much, but I take my food very seriously a cook most meals from scratch).
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 3/29/18 1:25pm Jeff Moore:

Oh, c'mon! Who dines before 19:00 except families with tiny kids or codgers who pop up at 5 in the morning and start their day all out of whack?
Avatar Thu. 3/29/18 1:26pm Parq:

I have no idea what people mean when they say Parisians are rude. I was there only for five days but I don't recall a single person being rude to me. Cynics say that's because shop owners wanted to sell me something, but that doesn't account for all the people whom my daughter stopped so she could pet their dogs, and all the people we greeted in the parks. And what NGH said at 12:52, and then some.
Avatar Thu. 3/29/18 1:27pm northguineahills:

When visiting my parents, it was unnerving that they would eat dinner at 4:30 (cue the Seinfeld episode where the seniors go for the early-bird special).

I'm rarely home from work before 8-9ish, so, that was when i was used to making dinner (after a drink).
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 3/29/18 1:28pm Jeff Moore:

No, I never experienced Parisians as rude. Some had a certain elegant formality which I guess some tourists might take the wrong way, and I had people correct my grammar or pronunciation - which I welcomed. They never seemed to be doing it in a mean way, just a want-things-right way.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 3/29/18 1:29pm Meghan:

at home I eat late, but when traveling, I tend to eat or want to eat earlier, since I plan on going out for drinks later. Or at least a snack. We had none of that...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 3/29/18 1:30pm Jeff Moore:

No snacks! There's the problem!
Avatar Thu. 3/29/18 1:30pm northguineahills:

The cashiers in De Gaulle responded to me in English when I attempted my Quebecois.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 3/29/18 1:30pm Meghan:

There was no place open for snacks!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 3/29/18 1:32pm Meghan:

We used French most of the time there unless someone was speaking English to us. But for our wine tasting, we asked for English, just so we didn't miss the important facts or words we may not know
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 3/29/18 1:34pm Jeff Moore:

That seems sensible. Information over pride.
Avatar Thu. 3/29/18 1:34pm northguineahills:

I love this Ayalèw Mèsfin! (got this Ethiopiques when it first came out).
Avatar Thu. 3/29/18 1:35pm βrian:

Crap. Did I miss the wine tasting? I had to get some lunch
  Thu. 3/29/18 1:35pm still b/p:

I got some of the rudeness from Paris workers — an impatient abruptness as if a need for a clearer response or bit of help was a sharp chafing exasperating imposition on them. Particular to Paris or France ? Maybe not, but pretty noticeable when a moment’s easy simple courtesy or even half effort at help would make a difference. Made me want to be more helpful to visitors here when I can be.
Avatar Thu. 3/29/18 1:35pm Parq:

Can I be candid? With Paris, as with New York, the problem is mainly middle American assholes who go to visit with about seven truckloads of hubris, and an equal amount of resentment towards cosmopolitan people, and who get upset when their "I'm a true son/daughter of God's Country, and when I say jump, you say how high" doesn't get obsequious results. They then turn around and tell all the folks back home how rude the urban locals were.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 3/29/18 1:35pm Meghan:

Though when we walked in I spoke French and then when they asked English we said yes please!
Avatar Thu. 3/29/18 1:36pm Parq:

Still b/p, I posted mine before I read yours, and I in no way put you in that group.
Avatar Thu. 3/29/18 1:36pm βrian:

Oysters vary in size quite a bit. I've had more than a dozen when I wasn't particularly hungry.
Avatar Thu. 3/29/18 1:39pm northguineahills:

I have a very conservative uncle who loves travelling to Europe, but doesn't like the people there b/c "they're too liberal". My brain breaks when trying to compute.
Avatar Thu. 3/29/18 1:39pm βrian:

I often find listening to strongly accented English is more difficult than parsing the French. Speaking is always problematic, though.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 3/29/18 1:40pm Meghan:

I will say, that like most major cities, that people don't have the lingering time for niceties... We have no problem giving you the info, but we are busy people and are probably rushing somewhere. I have no problem telling you directions, but I can't linger to give you the history or all the little friendly bits... I don't find it rude. It's just respecting people's time. Unlike the smaller towns that love to chit chat about little things.... I have this issue as a bartender as well. If you are coming up to a busy bar, know what you want and have your money ready. I'm not waiting for you to decide when other people are ready
Avatar Thu. 3/29/18 1:41pm Parq:

I had a friend in my younger days who used to say that some sort of a test for civility should be given, and then people who failed should be denied visas with leave to go to Bush Gardens.

Bonne Maman cherry preserves is my jam! Tastes great on PBJs or pancakes. I believe it's imported from France.
Avatar Thu. 3/29/18 1:49pm βrian:

Bonne Maman has too much sugar, to my taste. Good quality, though.
Avatar Thu. 3/29/18 1:50pm northguineahills:

The French take the aspects of terroir very seriously w/ all of their crops, not just grapes.
Avatar Thu. 3/29/18 1:53pm northguineahills:

As opposed to Berlin where you can drink all night....
Avatar Thu. 3/29/18 1:54pm coelacanth∅:

(or a huge night club in st.louis that's open all night - if you'd like to risk your life to drink out all night)
Avatar Thu. 3/29/18 1:55pm βrian:

By my reckoning, I can't drink all night anywhere.
Avatar Thu. 3/29/18 1:56pm northguineahills:

Getting off the train from Frankfurt in Berlin late at night, exhausted, and stressed to hell, it was a relief to get a beer of the train platform.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 3/29/18 1:56pm Meghan:

I am spoiled locally to being able to eat or drink whenever I want.... almost...
Avatar Thu. 3/29/18 1:57pm Parq:

I envy you guys. I've never traveled anywhere in European farm country, only passed through it on trains from once city to another. It must be really gratifying.
Avatar Thu. 3/29/18 1:57pm coelacanth∅:

yeah, the bars here close at 4. that's late enough.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 3/29/18 1:58pm Meghan:

4 is beyond late! If I'm still drinking around 4 am, I shouldn't be!
Avatar Thu. 3/29/18 1:58pm βrian:

My wife's students (predominantly from China) are aghast that they can't have food delivered to their doors within 15 minutes any time of day. This in a midwestern town of less than 40K people.
